what would be cutoff this year..as the questions were easy this year..as told to me.

i know paper is simple as compare the previous one but i think it will be same as previous year bcoz of vacancy is almost double this year. what u think?

cutoff mark was 230 for OBC and 245 for GEN in 2012.. so the cutoff this year may linger near about 235 and 250 respectively…
